DAVID JOHNSON RUMORS

Steelers TE Johnson ready for long-awaited return

The whistle sounded to end practice, and wave upon wave of Pittsburgh Steelers jogged off the field to the comfort of the locker room. Not David Johnson. To be honest, the tight end doesn't jog. Ever. Johnson moves with a deliberateness typically reserved for those with no particular place to go and no incentive to get there early. While his teammates made a beeline for the...

Having Johnson Back Helps, But How Much?

The Pittsburgh Steelers have activated tight end David Johnson from the Physically Unable to Perform, or PUP list today. According to the Steelers, he was scheduled to practice with the team at the their facility in Pittsburgh as training camp is officially over. He should provide a boost to a very weak position for the team right now. The question is, how much of a boost will...

Tight End David Johnson Has One More Shot To Continue His Career With The Steelers

Going into the Pittsburgh Steelers 2012 Training Camp, one of the more anticipated position battles was between David and Will Johnson at fullback. Going into camp I gave David the edge because of his blocking ability and his experience on the team though I would not have been shocked to see Will win the job. Will had displayed great athleticism and a potential to be a nice receiving...

Pittsburgh Steelers May Have to Look to Free Agency for Depth at Fullback After David Johnson's ACL Injury

Now that the first preseason game is out of the way, as well as the first major injury of the 2012 campaign, the Pittsburgh Steelers will be able to regroup and continue training camp.

Steelers' David Johnson enjoying move to fullback

PITTSBURGH - When the Pittsburgh Steelers told tight end David Johnson they wanted to move him to fullback full time this season, Johnson told coach Mike Tomlin he'd do whatever is necessary to stay with the team.

Fullback Is Nothing New For David Johnson & His Position Switch Is Not Surprising

The big news from day two of the Pittsburgh Steelers first OTA session of the 2012 season that everyone is buzzing about today seems to be the announcement that David Johnson is no longer considered a tight end now, but a fullback instead.

Steelers TE David Johnson On The Rise

David Johnson is gaining ground in his blocking ability this season. Courtesy Getty images. The past few games, the running game has been slightly more productive.  One could argue that the offensive line is blocking better – you would be wrong.  One could argue that Mendenhall is fighting for more yards – you would be dead wrong.  I believe it to be something else entirely...
